OU targets: Another look at the 2010 WRs

Recruiting coverage at SoonersIllustrated is going strong as we look to bring fans the latest in Oklahoma recruiting news. Today, we look at some of the nation' top wide receivers. Who is still in the mix with Oklahoma?

Here at Sooners Illustrated, we have a follow up to the July 2009 article about Looking at this upcoming senior class, especially at the wide receiver position, it's clear that this class is one of the strongest in recent years. When it comes to the national powerhouse Oklahoma program, the Sooners are definitely in the mix for many of these top wide outs.


Kenny Stills
Sooners Illustrated talked to Stills (6-1, 175) this week as he was fresh off an official visit to Tennessee. Next month, Stills will make his way out to Penn State, Florida and Oklahoma. The plan is to take all visits and Stills stated that after his last visit to Florida, he would know where he needs to be. And though he wants to venture from the West Coast and be open minded to a possible new start in the South, California is still a solid option for his services as well. Of all the wide receivers, Oklahoma may be in the best position with Stills than some of the others. 

Then too, the friendship between he and running back Brennan Clay, who is an Oklahoma commit, could help the Sooner cause.


Darius White
Not many recent Scout.com updates on White have shown any one school that is in the driver's seat completely. White (6-4, 195) of Fort Worth Dunbar stills names schools like Texas Tech, Oklahoma State, Florida, Oklahoma and USC as possibilities. But at this point, who really knows. Sooners Illustrated will keep and eye on this one. 


Marcus Lucas
Not a lot going on this front as well. Lucas (6-4, 190) has not set up any visits as of yet. But it would appear to be two schools left, Oklahoma and Missouri. Many would say that the in-state program has the upper hand for not only obvious location reason, but his mother attended school there as well. He's open and not really worried about the process. And then again, February 2010 is still a ways away.


Trovon Reed
The fact still remains that Reed (5-11, 175) is still wide open, but has said in Scout.com updates that LSU, Auburn and Florida are recruiting him the hardest. Reed seems to be closets to the Auburn staff according to the latest interview. One thing is for certain, Oklahoma has not been mentioned in a while.


DeAndrew White
As for recruiting, DeAndrew White (6-0, 170) of North Shore has kept the media updates to a minimum keeping a low profile. Where he is visiting and other pieces of pertinent information as not been published on the network. He plans to announce at the Army All-American game.


Anthony Jefferson
Latest reports show that Jefferson has two officials set up, California and Oregon. Jefferson (6-2, 180) also mentioned that he would like to check out schools like Notre Dame, Oklahoma, Tennessee, Arizona and Washington a little closer. Doesn't seem like Oklahoma is in as good a position as some of the other programs, especially on the West Coast.


Jackie Williams
The Alabama prep star got his first offer from Oklahoma and it has been stated that the Sooners are one of three schools in a good place for Williams. Not a lot of news floating around about Williams, but look for an update on him Sooner than later.

In the Bag-Oklahoma WR Commits
At the moment, the Sooners do have a few commitments for the class of 2010. Headlining the class is Bishop Miege's Justin McCay. The Sooners also have, from Cibolo Steele, Sheldon McClain and West Orange-Stark's Trey Franks. Dallas Skyline's Joseph Powell, who is being brought in as an athlete, may get some time on offense.
